Major updates confirmed to be regular.
You know how League of Legends had a two-week schedule for over a year straight? Remember how nice that was? SWTOR, now that it's Free to Play, is adopting something similar, with a six-week "major update" for the game, as revealed in an AusGamer interview with Matthew Bromberg -- reconfirming what our own Gareth "Gazimoff" Harmer discovered in his terrific interview with Jeff Hickman on August 30.
AusGamers: In terms of the content going forward -- at the press conference you guys talked about [new] stuff coming out -- is there a kind of quantifiable volume that you can talk about, in terms of what you would like to see by the end of the year, and then maybe the first quarter of next year?
Matthew: Well we’re committed to: about every six weeks, doing a major update for the game -- which would be a new Warzone, a new Operation, a new Flashpoint, a new event -- and to doing that on a really frequent cadence, every six weeks. So we’re going to stick to that.
For the most part, the interview has a lot of general discussion about SWTOR and Bioware's plans for the future, but (obviously) he didn't have a lot he could say about what to expect, aside from details on the change from subscription accounts to free-to-play. But this kind of spaced out content? Reasons to keep coming back to SWTOR and find out what Bioware has created in the Star Wars universe? That's enough for me.
